[Spoiler alert]

In “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” the First Order intended to put an end to the Resistance once and for all with their new super weapon. They managed to destroy several planets, including the planet that had the Galactic Senate of the New Republic.

The First Order also suffered losses in the movie. Their Starkiller base was destroyed and it may take them many years to be able to build another super weapon. The movie also showed that Kylo Ren was ready to finish his journey to the dark side by completing his training under Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis).

Kylo Ren in “Star Wars: Episode 8” may be shown to be undergoing training. The movie will pick up from the scene where Rey (Daisy Ridley) meets Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). Rey experienced an awakening of the Force inside her and is expected to begin her journey as a Jedi under Master Luke.

Filming of the movie currently ongoing. After filming some of the scenes at Dubrovnik, Croatia the production crew is back in Northern Ireland. Recent reports indicate that both Hamill and Ridley will be filming their scenes in Ireland.

“Star Wars: Episode 8” is slated to be released on Dec. 15, 2017 in Australia. The movie is being directed by Rian Johnson and some of the cast members of the movie include John Boyega (Finn), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata) and Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma).
